Fit comes in all shapes and sizes.
This is something I've been talking about recently because to be honest with you, I am so sick and tired of seeing the same kind of body being referred to as 'fit'. You know that tall, toned, borderline Victoria's Secret model look? yeah.
Here's the thing, I love Victoria's Secret models, they're bloody gorgeous but mate, so is Serena Williams and she couldn't look more different from them if she tried. Body positivity has made a lot of progress in the last few years but I'm just not seeing that in the fitness community as much. Imagine, Nike has only just released a plus size range but keep in mind that this is a brand that is always ahead of the game so imagine how long it will take for everyone else to catch up.
I just want women, men and everyone in between to know that no matter what they look like, they can be considered fit. I've seen women twice my age and twice my size run right past me with ease. I've seen girls half my size lift double the weight I could ever even dream of lifting.
I think if there were more body positivity in the fitness community, people would feel more comfortable with starting a healthy lifestyle and being excited about it. Right now, the whole healthy lifestyle movement feels exclusive to those who look a certain way but it's not.
So to anyone reading this who's making an effort with starting or living a healthy lifestyle, you are fit.
